Wisakha Puja Day is the most sacred occasion
for the whole Buddhist world. It marks three important events
in the life of Gotama Buddha’s life. The three are his birth,
enlightenment and his passing into Parinibbana. These events
all took place on the full moon of the sixth lunar month.

 
During May, students from our school and all
over Samut Prakan City came together to take part in a special
ceremony at Wat Nok (Wat
Phichai Songkram). The photographs above show a Buddha image
and some monks representing all of the temple in Samut Prakarn
City.

 
The head monk lead everyone in chanting from
the Buddhist scriptures. The students on the left are holding
a lotus flower, a candle and three incense sticks between their
palms as they chant. On the right, the young novice monks are
lighting their candles and incense sticks before they take part
in wien tien around the bot.

This is the main bot at Wat Nok. It is believed
to be more than 250 years old. Whenever there are any religious
festivals many local people come to this temple to take part
in wien tien. This usually takes place in the early evening
when people circle the bot three times in a clockwise
direction.

After the monks had completed wien tien,
they entered the bot to take part in some more chanting in front
of the main Buddha images for this temple.
